The "CYGWIN" distribution contains libraries that are compiled with
"CYGWIN". The only exceptions are the libraries that are specifically
built via mingw:
libcrtdll.a libmingw32.a libmingwthrd.a libmoldname.a libmsvcrt.a

IF. THE. GCC. MAINTAINER. WANTS. TO. DO. THIS. THAT. IS. HIS.
I have little interest in -mno-cygwin. I am the Cygwin Engineering
Manager. I'm not the No-Cygwin Engineering Manager.
However, I would be thrilled to include anything mingw related in a
future distribution. I am just not going to go out of my way myself to
do something that does not interest me. I assume that since neither
Corinna nor DJ has stepped forward, they are not interested either.
Additionally, no one else is rushing forth to be the new mingw maintainer.
That's a shame but I would strongly suggest that everyone who is interested
in mingw should do something about this. I am interested only insofar as
I am sick and tired of people suggesting that I solve their problems and
would like to see someone provide a solution instead of a "good idea".
There is a mingw mailing list. Possibly you'll find a volunteer over
there who will be interested in implementing your plan.
